Steamed Egg Custard


This is one of the humblest of Cantonese dishes and one of the noblest custards. A couple of tips will ensure perfection. Boiled then cooled water is one of the requirements for achieving a delicate, smooth custard. Also, do not allow the water in the steamer to get above a bare simmer, and be sure to remove the custard as soon as it sets. Heat that is too strong or overcooking will result in a spongy texture.
